A n 11-year-old boy is appealing to the public to help search for his 63-year-old grandfather of Urata in Bulileka, Labasa.

Year Five pupil Ranish Chand of Shiri Guru Nanak Khalsa Primary School in Labasa clearly remembers that his grandfather, Ashok Kumar has not returned home for a week, since August 30.

“My grandfather hasn’t come home and I don’t know why,” Ranish said.

“Please look for him and when you find him tell him that we are waiting for him at home.”

Ranish’s father 32-year-old Rohit Chand said the last time he saw Mr Kumar, his father, was last week Tuesday morning.

“Around 8.30am my father said he was going to Bulileka Village for a hand massage,” Mr Chand said.

“Suddenly he received a call and changed his mind.

“When he saw me getting into the car going into town, he asked me to drop him near the Labasa bus stand.

“I dropped him off nicely without questioning and this was the last time I saw him.

“I called all our family and relatives, checked Labasa Hospital and still there is no sign of him.

“I reported to the police after he failed to answer his phone and it has been eight days they have been searching for him.

“My father is a former carpenter and a casual worker of Ashwin Enterprises in Labasa.

“He is a heart patient and is asthmatic too.”

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the Labasa Police had received a report from the family reporting that Mr Kumar had been missing from last week.
